Tyson Fury promoter Frank Warren admits David Haye fight would be 'huge' – Anthony Joshua is 'only fight we want to see'

TYSON FURY'S promoter claims a fight with David Haye would be "huge" – but says Anthony Joshua is still the "only fight" everyone wants.

Haye, 40, insists he has the right style to beat the undefeated world champ, having returned with a win on Saturday.


And Fury's UK promoter Frank Warren suggested a long-awaited clash with the Gypsy King was not totally fanciful.

Haye beat businessman-turned-boxer Joe Fournier on points on the undercard of 58-year-old Evander Holyfield's farcical one-round defeat against Vitor Belfort.

And Warren told iFL TV: "I've got a lot of respect for David but he's 40. I mean, he's not a youngster but he's not 58.

"He suffered some bad injuries and certainly against Tony Bellew… I'm in shock to be quite honest because I fancied David Haye (to win). 

"Having said that, he obviously had these injuries and he shouldn't have been in the ring in the first place.

"I don't know whether he's got rid of the injuries or not.

"I'm sure he's calling out Tyson because him and Tyson, let's get it right, would be a huge fight.

"But I think he's got to do a bit more before talking about Tyson Fury.

"For No 1, he'd have to get rated, and to get rated you've got to fight a rated fighter."

Warren, though, stressed, another all-British fight remains the big one for Fury – against AJ.

He said: "Fury and Joshua is the only fight we want to see.

"But they've got to deal with what they've got in front of them first because we've been down this road for about a year now."

Haye officially retired after Bellew twice beat him but claims he has unearthed "big fat dosser" Fury's "kryptonite" – and that's the only official fight he'd come back for.

He said: "I know how to beat Tyson Fury, I really do. I'm being deadly serious.

"I understand why he's so effective and no-one else can see it. I'm good enough still to do it. I would have done it back in 2013. He knows it."

Unbeaten Fury is off social media as he prepares for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder on October 9.

But his management team responded to Haye calling him by posting a picture of the 6ft 9ins champ standing over the Londoner at a 2013 press conference, along with the words: "There's only one".
